I have high hopes of reading from my shelves in 2016. Yes, the shiny new titles often call for attention, but I want to read some of those books that called out to me five or ten years ago. I think I'll wind up with a mix of old and new, but I hope to focus on what I actually own. These are the five that are currently on my nightstand (or on my Nano). What do you think? Which should be the first for 2016? I'm leaning toward Like Family.
I've had an ARC of this one for a couple of years now, but I didn't want to read it too close to reading All the Light We Cannot See. I think enough time has passed so I won't get the two mixed up.
This one has been on several of my "soon to be read" lists on this blog. I say it's high time, don't you?
I've wanted to listen to the audio production of this book for at least a year. My library still doesn't have it available to download, but I was given a subscription to Audible.com for Christmas and it's the first thing I purchased. Can. Not. Wait!
My dear friend, Bellezza, sent me this gorgeous novel for my birthday earlier this month. Don't you love the cover art? We fly home from Oregon on New Year's Day and I have the following two days off before returning to work. I think I'll spend next Saturday curled up on my couch with a cup of hot tea and this lovely book.
I've read a lot of books by Rosamunde Pilcher, but for some reason I've let this one languish for far too long on my shelves. I loved the way she described everyday life in The Shell Seekers and look forward to visiting Cornwall once again through her eyes.
How about you? Do you have a list of books you'd like to read this winter or do you just grab whatever catches your eye? Do you know what will be your first book of 2016?
